Game of Thrones’ James Cosmo in Darksiders II live action ad

James Cosmo is one of Scotland’s most widely recognised actors – and yet, I fear, too many people would have to look his name up. He’s /that guy/ from /that move/.

In Cosmo’s case that move could be Braveheart, or Troy, or The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were he played Father Christmas, or The Last Legion, Citadel or even The Dark is Rising. In TV terms he’s been Castle and is Father Kellan Ashby in Sons of Anarchy. Most recently he gets to be Jeor Mormont in Game of Thrones.

He’s a fine choice for the role in this “Darksiders II: Death Lives” trailer. Look at this breathe. How cold was it in there? Or post-effect?

Darksiders II is due out in August and will hit the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. THQ are even bringing it to the Wii U.
